Description

In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the back of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. Reverse painting has an ancient history going back to the Middle Ages.
